CAN YOU LEARN TO BE LUCKY? Why Some People Seem to Win More Often Than Others

by | Read by Arielle Siegel

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Arielle Siegel's sensitivity to the flow of ideas, along with her appealing vocal energy, help make this an accessible guide to performing better in seemingly chaotic and unpredictable environments. Magazine writer and NYU business professor Karla Starr offers zippy narratives and lucid research summaries to make the case that life is not as random as we think. We may feel unlucky when we fail to influence someone or are judged harshly by them, but it could be that their negative response to us is the predictable result of their internalized stereotypes, low energy, or recent bad experiences. Starr says that we can make our own "luck" when we look for these patterns in others and make adjustments in our approach to improve our chances.
